Chikorita (チコリータ, Chikorīta) is a fictional creature in the Pokémon media franchise.
In Super Smash Bros. Melee
As a Poké Ball Pokémon
Chikorita makes its debut in Super Smash Bros. Melee with its signature attack, Razor Leaf. Chikorita will start shaking its head and send out a barrage of leaves from its head-leaf. The projectiles travel in a straight line. Any opponent that makes contact with the leaves will take damage; the summoner cannot be harmed. Chikorita's attack is rather brief and easily avoided. However, once caught in the line of attack, it is rather difficult to get out.
As a Trophy
Chikorita features as a collectible trophy, unlocked as one of the 100+ trophies that can be collected randomly during normal play, such as in the Trophy Lottery and throughout the various Single-player Regular Matches. Its trophy reads as follows:
Chikorita was one of the first three Pokémon available in Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal. A Grass-type Pokémon, it emits a delightful fragrance from the leaves on its head and loves to spend its time leisurely sunbathing. When called into battle, it uses its Razor Leaf move to strike at opponents' weak points.
A Leaf Pokémon. It loves sunbathing and can use the leaf on its head to check the temperature and humidity around it. Chikorita releases a sweet aroma from its leaf to becalm opponents into a slumber. It can also learn moves to help recover all Pokémon allies. Chikorita evolves into Bayleef by leveling up.
Pokémon Gold/Silver (2000)
Chikorita was replaced by Snivy in Super Smash Bros for the Wii U and 3DS.
